Gold pendants are the perfect summer jewellery accessory and we’re expecting to see a lot of t-shirts and shorts combos finished off with a dazzling pendant. With so many different styles of pendants to choose from, you can find the perfect piece for any occasion.

In this blog, we’re looking at the most popular pendants at Hatton Jewellers and the best ways to style them.

What Are Gold Pendants?

Firstly, we must delve into what a pendant actually is, before we can think about styling them. A pendant is defined as a piece of jewellery which is hung, often from the neck, however, there are pendant earrings too. A pendant can be a symbol, such as a cross for religious purposes, or it could be a locket, which features an opening mechanism to store a keepsake inside.

The styles of pendants themselves can range anywhere along a huge spectrum from subtle to truly extravagant, with some of our more bold pieces resembling that of hip-hop artists’ most famous pieces. The beauty of this vast spectrum is that there is something for everyone and no matter what your style or planned occasion, you’ll be able to find a pendant which suits.

How To Style Pendants in Summer

When it comes to styling pendants, typically, less is more as you want to give your pendant center stage. We’re not saying that you can’t pair it with other pieces of jewellery and some pendants may even lend themselves to being part of a crowd, but a truly special piece can hold its own.

Here’s a little inspiration for both men and women on how to style pendants with a look fit for the summer months.

For Men

To style a pendant effortlessly, you need to match it with an outfit that perfectly complements the piece. For summer, a plain white t-shirt is a great way of putting the emphasis onto your accessory and letting the gold do the dazzling. 

The t-shirt and short fit is great for a casual day out but if you’re looking for something a little sharper, maybe for heading into the office or meeting a few friends at a bar, pendants look great with a shirt - of course leaving the top two/three buttons open to reveal the piece beneath.

For Women

Deploying the same technique, a plain t-shirt and pendant combo can look great on women too for low-key day-to-day outfit. If you’re looking for something a little more stylish, a flowing summer dress or skirt and denim jacket combo lend themselves perfectly to an elegant pendant. 

Pendants are also great for bringing life to subtle outfits, creating a great contrast. So, opting for a bright solid gold pendant and pairing it with a washed-out cardigan is a great way of creating a unique style that’s spot on for the sunnier months. 

Can All Chains Be Used For Pendants?

When choosing a chain to bear your pendant, there are a few things you need to consider. 

The first is ensuring that the chain you’ve chosen is strong enough and not too thin as to be damaged by any potentially heavy pendants. Opting for a curb chain is a great way to avoid this as the links are tightly locked to guarantee greater durability.

Secondly, you need to consider the size of the pendant you’re looking to wear and how this looks with the size of chain you’re looking to buy. If the pendant is small, a large chunky chain will look completely out of place and instead you’re better off choosing one which is much thinner and better balanced.

You must also consider the size of your pendant’s fastening, ensuring that it is large enough for the chain to fit through in the first place. Not all chains are suitable for this and it’s important to check the information on the product page to see whether the chain is specified for use with a pendant.
